Help with Benefits and Energy Rebate Payments

Dear parent,


You will have seen via your media channels that the Government in England is offering support to families who are finding the cost of living and energy increases difficult.


Face-to-face advice is available for Royal Greenwich residents at our outreach advice hubs.

Participating organisations are Welfare Rights Service (for benefits advice), Citizens Advice (for debt and generalist advice), Plumstead Law Centre (for immigration advice) and Greenwich Housing Rights (for housing advice). 
Advisers are also available to assist residents needing help to apply for the £150 or £65 Energy Rebate payment.


If you need help to apply, please visit any of the advice hubs listed in the table below and bring with a copy of a bank statement so that it can be uploaded. This is drop-in support, so you can just turn up if they need help.


Please do make use of this - so you are able to get what you are entitled to.
